TUC Aid is working with the General Federation of Iraqi Trade Unions (GFITU) and the International Trade Union Confederation to deliver a project aimed at empowering women workers, and promoting their rights in workplaces, communities and homes. The project focuses on training and education, organising workers, campaigning against the structural causes of gender discrimination, and tackling the serious problem of violence and harassment against women in the workplace.
Project activities include:
Project progress (March 2021)
In February 2020, the project funded costs for one trade union participant to attend the ITUC’s Organising Academy in Tunis. This is helping to build the union’s organising capacity.
Implementation of other project activities has been delayed due to the political situation in Iraq and the impacts of coronavirus. Project activities will resume in March 2021.
Project activities resumed in March 2021 with the 3-day training held for female trade union representatives.
